    :rofl: I've been following the MLB playoffs pretty steadily, but baseball is utter crap when compared to football. I'd rather watch a lame Monday Night game than the MLB playoffs any day of the week.

    Of course it did.


    Nobody watches the Rangers, and the Yankees fans won't bother to watch till they get to the World Series.

    I don't know, Cliff Lee was brilliant last night (2-0 game). If I didn't hate the Yankees last night, I would have watched it instead of a lame Jax team.

    I guess the Yankee fans won't be watching any games this October, then.

    I watched both. The baseball game was at least a game. That was some ugly football by Jacksonville.

    I still don't understand why the ALCS is coming on tbs and the NLCS is aired on Fox.

    They alternate every year. I think all the Fox TV series pitched a fit that one year when Fox showed both the ALCS, the NLCS, and World Series.

    Not that it would have made a monumental difference, but the game being on TBS doesn't help ratings any. I don't think TBS is very high on the list of networks that most sports fans visit when channel surfing.

    Maybe it came down to watching Cliff Lee or Chris Johnson? Plus, my wife hates baseball, so we were always going to be watching the lame MNF game.

    I'm not a fan of the TBS coverage. I know they've been "national" for a little while, but I still think of them as the Atlanta Braves network. It's like making the YES network the leader of playoff coverage.

    I gave up on baseball years ago, after the last strike. Too much money for too many primadonnas playing a kid's game. Especially will all the night games and the outrageous prices for tix and snackage, it just wasn't the same.

    I'll watch the Red Sox when they play the Yankees, or if they get into the post season, but other than that, It's all football for me. :D

    You're surprised? Baseball is a horrible sport. The only point of going to a game is to get drunk there with their (sometimes good) deals. But generally minor league games > professional ones in that regard.

    It's clearly not a 'horrible' sport to millions of people spending billions of dollars.

    I used to be a big baseball fan, but it's so slow and behind the times. Last night I knew it'd gotten bad when I threw the ALCS game on my computer for background noise while I was playing 360. And the only reason I watched it all was to keep track it for a friend who was at work.

    It just doesn't have the action, drama, or depth that football does.

    There are a lot of reasons that the NFL is more popular than MLB, but I don't follow your logic. From what I have seen there is a much larger number of people that go to football games to get drunk than go to baseball games for that reason.

    Regarding the last comment, are you really surprised that minor league games have better deals (i.e., prices) than major league games? What's next, news that tickets to the Bryant-Duquence football game will be less expensive, more readily available and closer to the field than tickets to the Pats-Vikings?

    Yes, I'm ignorant because I don't enjoy the same things as you. Offended much?

    And, that baseball is sinking into anachronism.
